New plantings and Rotunda now in place

Mandala garden and rotunda
10th Oct 2023

The Mandala Garden, which is part of the Guyra Garden Club’s Memorial Park project has been planted out and the Rotunda has been erected.
Project Manager David Kanaley said that this marks the end stages of the project which they have been working on for a number of years.
“The Guyra Garden Club has worked with the Guyra Sub-branch of the RSL, the Rotary Club of Guyra and the Guyra Branch of the CWA together with the Armidale Regional Council to design, develop and implement the Memorial Park project to enhance this asset for the benefit of the community and visitors to Guyra,” Mr Kanaley said.
“You can’t help but notice the change as you drive down the New England Highway, and at night the solar lights make the Rotunda and Garden look wonderful.
“The Rotunda was funded by the Guyra Branch of the CWA. The four seats are currently being made in Guyra and will be installed in the Rotunda soon.
“These Park elements together with Memorial Plaques honouring WW 1 and WW2 service men and women and a Memorial Avenue of Trees plus a Rotary BBQ will be opened on November 11th following the Remembrance Day service.
“This will be a community event. More details will be provided through the Guyra Gazette closer to the event. It is hoped that everyone in the community will, after the opening ceremony, be better able to use and enjoy this Park.”
